How to Entertain a Diverse Wedding Crowd

When it comes to entertaining your wedding guests, there’s a tricky balance to achieve because of the wide age range.  It’s quite a feat to keep the children and the seniors equally entertained.

Here are a few tips that will help you pull it off:

For the young guests

  • Consider having a separate table for the children and decorate it brightly.  Use paper tablecloths and let them draw on them with colored pencils or crayons.
  • Alternatively, hang bags of little toys and games on the backs of their chairs so that they’ll be kept occupied.
  • If you’re having an outdoors reception and a few of your guests are particularly obliging, you could organize a treasure hunt.
  • You could section off a part of the reception area for face painting or a balloon artist – so long as it’s not something that is particularly loud.

For the older guests

  • When you’re compiling your playlist, insert some classics from the 1950s and 60s.  If you choose well, everyone will love the songs.
  • Set aside some comfortable seating for elderly guests to use when they want to have a chat, and make sure you spend a little time talking to them rather than constantly dancing with your more active guests.
  • Having an entertainments night rather than a full night of dancing is a great idea.  You could have spots for a casino, magician or professional dancers to mix things up.
